INTRODUCTION 

Guaire is a modernization of the old tale, Imtheacht 
na Trom-dhdimhe, which was edited with a translation 
by Professor Owen Connellan in i860 for the Ossianic 
Society, and was published in volume V of the Society's 
Transactions. The story has also been designated as 
" The Introduction to Táin Bo Cuailgne " because it 
purports to account for the origin of that composition. 
It is a satire upon the satirists, and is severe enough 
to have produced the traditional " three blisters of re- 
proach " on the faces of the entire Bardic Assembly. 
The present modernized version, owing to its judicious 
amplifications and its omission of scarcely intelligible 
poems, is a decided improvement on the old version 
which sorely needs revision. The notes are mainly aids 
to translation, but incidentally they touch upon 
etymology and historical grammar. The vocabulary 
has been made as comprehensive as was considered 
feasible.

SYNOPSIS OF CHAPTERS 



Explanatory introduction showing the tyranny of the bards, 
and the way in which they abused their powers and the rights 
of hospitality. The rivalry which existed between Aodh the 
Dark and Aodh the Fair. Aodh the Dark's superiority 
consists in the possession of a famous shield Dubhghiolla, which 
gives him the victory over all his enemies. 

II. 

Dalian, the blind chief-poet of Ireland, is on a visitation with 
Aodh the Fair, and Aodh, by flattery and bribes, incites Dalian 
to go and ask Aodh the Dark for his treasured shield. This 
he consents to do against his better instincts, while protesting 
that the request is not that of a true sage. 

III. 

Dalian comes to Aodh Dubh and recites a poem of praise 
in order to induce a generous mood. Then he recites an ode 
in praise of the shield Dubhghiolla, and asks as a reward the 
shield itself. Aodh Dubh refuses the request ; whereupon 
Dalian threatens to satirize him. Aodh, in turn, warns Dalian 
that by so doing he would incur the wrath of the saints of 
Ireland, notably Columcille, who made a settlement between 
the kings and bards. 

IV. 

Dalian satirizes Aodh Dubh, who prays that Columcille will 
give him the wages he deserves. As a result Dalian's sight 
is miraculously restored ; but his joy soon gives place to gloomy 
forebodings, as he recognises in the miracle a harbinger of 
death. Three days afterwards Dalian dies. 

V. 

Sets forth the great influence of Muirean, the " Mother of 
the Bards." The election of Shanachán as poet-king in place 
of Dalian, due to her influence. Muirean shows Méibh, the 
daughter of Shanachán, that Guaire, King of Connacht, is 
indirectly the cause of the death of Dalian ; and without 
Shanachán's knowledge the two of them plot their revenge 
on Guaire. 



88 5UA1íie 

VI. 

The College of Bards determine to go on a visitation, and 
on the suggestion of Muirean (who has an ulterior motive) 
they decide on going to Guaire, who has a special house pre- 
pared for their reception. Shanachán, touched by Guaire's 
generosity, proposes to divide the Bards into three companies, 
and take them in turn to visit Guaire. Although every 
comfort is provided for them the bards are constantly 
grumbling. 

VII. 

To crown it all Muirean begins to develop her plot by pre- 
tending to be seized by sudden strange longings which must 
be satisfied, or — so she declares — she will not live long. Her 
longings are always for something which she thinks Guaire 
will not be able to procure, in which case he would be satirized 
by the bards and lose his reputation for generosity. Her first 
longing is for badgers' new milk and the marrow of the ankles 
of a wild pig.

Guaire, in desperation, applies for help to his brother 
Marbhán, the swine-herd, who is in reality a holy hermit. 
Marbhán finds the requisite materials in his home at Gleann an 
Sgáil. Muirean is seized with a longing for a pet cuckoo in 
the winter time. 

IX. 

Guaire goes to pray at Fionnaragal na Féile, where he meets 
Marbhán, who fulfils the letter of Muirean 's longing by an 
ingenious contrivance. The College of Bards is pleased and 
astonished at Guaire's resourcefulness ; but Muirean is mortified, 
and she and Méibh put their heads together to devise more 
trouble. 

X. 

An account is given of the way in which the bards occupied 
themselves, each man perfecting himself in his own particular 
art. Muirean bides her time until she thinks that the affair 
of the cuckoo is gone out of their minds ; then she wishes for 
the lard of a white boar that has never been farrowed. Guaire 
betakes himself once more to Fionnaragal. Marbhán comes to 
him and admits sorrowfully that he has a pet boar which, by 
a curious coincidence, fulfils the requisite conditions. 

XI. 

Marbhán tells how he came by the boar, which is killed, 
and the lard given to Muirean. She now longs for a wonderful 



SYNOPSIS OF CHAPTERS 89 

cloak to wear and a roan steed to carry her to visit Guaire's 
palace. 

XII. 

The roan steed is provided by Iubhdán, and the cloak by 
his daughter. The story of how the daughter came by the 
many-coloured cloak at first. Muirean's last ride. Her funeral. 
Méibh carries on the vendetta. 

XIII. 

At Shrovetide, with snow on the ground, Méibh longs for 
ripe blackberries. They are found in Gieann an Sgáil. 

XIV. 

Méibh, in her vexation, gives vent to a spiteful wish. 
Shanachán remonstrates with her, but she attributes her conduct 
to her nettlesome disposition. Marbhán, as usual, comes to 
the rescue ; he supplies a potion which induces a temporary 
indisposition , simulating fever ; a symptom which disappears 
after a second dose of the same magic drug. The sight of the 
(apparently) fever-stricken household of Guaire reacts upon 
Méibh, who, on returning, contracts a sharp bout of the genuine 
article. On her recovery her mother, Brigid, declares that 
Marbhan is responsible for the mischief, and that she is deter- 
mined to take vengeance on him for causing Méibh's illness. 
Méibh has had a lesson, and will indulge in no more longings, 
but Brigid decides to try her skill. 

XV. 

Brigid is smitten with a longing for the fat of a rare bird 
—a water-ousel, or water-blackbird. Marbhán informs Guaire 
that the bird is to be found with the nuns of Tuam, and it 
is obtained in exchange for nine score of ordinary blackbirds. 

XVI. 

Brigid has two more longings, one for a red-eared pure 
white cow without any liver, and another for mountain berries 
and a draught of some liquid with a high-sounding name. The 
cow is obtained from the nuns of Tuam, and the mysterious 
liquid turns out to be merely the honey of the woodbine. 
Guaire's fame for hospitality remains untarnished; he has 
supplied every want ; people in general are growing disgusted 
with the bards, and Shanachán, the chief poet, is very angry 
at their failure to find a pretext for satirising Guaire. 

XVII. 

Shanachán tries to break all previous records by the 
extravagance of his longing. He asks for the fat of a pig that 



9o gtiAme 

was never farrowed, and ale made from one grain of wheat. 
Marbhán is equal to the occasion again, and offers to give a 
feast to Shanachán and his retinue and the nobles of Connacht. 
Shanachán pretends to be insulted by an invitation to feast 
at Gleann an Sgáil, so the feast is held in his own house. 

XVIII. 

The feast is given, but Shanachán sulks and will neither 
eat nor drink. Guaire sends special messengers to try and tempt 
his appetite, yet Shanachán only insults them. He refuses 
food from the hands of the cleanest girl in Ireland, on the 
grounds that her grandfather used to stretch his hands in the 
direction of lepers when preaching to them. Guaire is indignant 
at this and prays that Shanachán may never die until he 
kisses the mouth of a leper. 

XIX. 

The bards fear that Shanachán may die of hunger if he 
persists in his absurd " hunger strike/' and his wife, Brigid, 
offers to send him her leavings — a hen-egg. He consents to 
eat it, but it transpires that the mice have forestalled him, 
In a fit of anger he satirises the mice, who die rapidly. The 
sight of a mouse and her brood dead at his feet causes him to 
realize that his wrath should really be directed against the 
tribe of cats, whose business it was to check the mice. He 
thereupon satirizes the cats, especially Iorusán, the king of 
the cats, who lives in the cave of Knowth. The influence of 
the satire reaches Iorusán, and he sets out to revenge himself 
on Shanachán. 

XX. 

Iorusán carries oí¥ Shanachán as easily as a fox would a 
gander. Shanachán tries to escape by flattering the cat. 
Failing this he calls upon God. As the cat is carrying him 
past the forge of St. Ciarán, the latter throws a red-hot iron 
bar at Iorusán and kills him. Shanachán, instead of thanking 
Ciarán, abuses him for interfering. He returns to the bards, 
and is welcomed by them and Guaire, but he turns away 
angrily and retires. 

XXI. 

The bards quiet down, and no more longings come to them. 
Marbhán determines to have his revenge on them for the death 
of his pet boar. He comes in disguise, but his ready wit betrays 
his identity to Shanachán. On the strength of a very distant 
connexion with science he makes a request which the bards 
dare not refuse, viz., his choice of scientific entertainment. 
He chooses that the College of Bards should make " his fill 
of cronaun for him." 



SYNOPSIS OF CHAPTERS 91 

XXII. 

In order to punish the bards the more severely, Marbhán 
chooses the kind of " cronaun " that has a catch in it, and 
is harder on the throat of the performer. The " cronauners " 
soon get tired, and begin to cough and sneeze, but Marbhán 
says sarcastically that, although they bear the palm for the 
coughing and sneezing performance, it was for " cronauning " 
he asked. 



XXIII. 

Shanachán brings in a fresh batch of " cronauners " to 
relieve the first. His remark that the " catchy cronaun " is 
difficult only elicits from Marbhán the retort that it is not 
so difficult as to produce a pet cuckoo in winter. Daoi 
Duileadh, one of the bards, tries to get Marbhán away from 
the subject of the " cronaun " by offering to answer questions. 
Marbhán silences him by showing up his ignorance. Casmhaol, 
the harper, chimes in and is also silenced. Marbhán returns 
to the subject of the " cronaun," and says that the bards 
ought not to be outdone by a poor beetle. 



XXIV. 

A timpanist and a poet try to distract Marbhán, but are 
disgraced and silenced. The story of how the first harp was 
made and the first rann composed. 



XXV. 

Shanachán himself undertakes to do the " cronaun " and 
breaks down. A storyteller comes to the rescue. Marbhán 
asks him for Erin's chief story — " Táin Bó Cuailgne." The 
storyteller is obliged to confess that he has never heard it. 
Marbhán binds it on the College of Bards that they are not 
to stay two nights in the same townland until they find the 
story and tell it to him. 



XXVI. 

The bards leave Guaire, and set out on their wanderings 
in search of the " Tain/' the womenfolk and boys remaining 
behind. At Naas they meet a leper. They tell him that they 
are going to Connra, the blind King of Leinster, to ask for 
ships to bring them to Scotland. He reminds them that 
Marbhán has deprived them of the power of composing poems, 
and they must produce a poem of praise for Connra if they are 
to get ships. They find on experimenting that the leper is 
right ; they have lost their art and do not know what to do. 



92 Bailie 

XXVII. 

The leper offers to go with them and compose a poem for the 
King of Leinster on condition that Shanachán kisses him. 
Shanachán very reluctant^ consents. The King of Leinster 
is pleased with the poem recited by the leper and gives the 
bards a ship and provisions. Shanachán refuses to allow the 
leper to accompany them. Near the Isle of Man they see a 
person standing on a rock ; at the same time the leper, who 
was supposed to have stayed behind, appears on the prow of 
their ship. The person on the rock will not permit them to 
land until they complete some half verses ; this the leper does 
correctly and they go ashore. 

XXVIII. 

The person on the rock proves to be a lady-doctor, who 
entertains them hospitably, and gives them gold when they 
leave. The leper disappears. They go to Scotland to consult 
Maol Geidhic, the chief-poet of Alba. They fail to get tidings 
of the "Tain" in Scotland, and so return to Dublin. While 
they are wondering what to do, in the absence of the leper . 
reciter, they meet St. Caillin, Shanachán's brother. Shanachán 
tells him about their adventures and about the leper. 

XXIX. 

Caillin asks if he would recognise the leper if he saw him 
again. Shanachán declares that he can never forget him. 
It turns out that the leper was only Caillin in disguise. On 
condition that the bards will never again ask anyone for a thing 
they long for, Caillin offers to approach the only man living 
who knows how to get the "Táin," namely, Marbhán the 
swine-herd. 

XXX. 

After a week Caillin returns and tells them that the " geasa " 
are removed, and they may return to the house provided for 
them by Guaire. Guaire welcomes them. Caillin goes to 
Gleann na Sgáil to Marbhán, and brings him to the College 
of Bards, who are afraid to meet him. Caillin persuades them 
to assemble in a large room, where Marbhán addresses them. 
Marbhán tells them that Caillin must get the " Táin " for 
them from Feargus mac Róigh. Shanachán is angry, and 
accuses him of mocking them, because Feargus has been dead 
five hundred years. Marbhán shows that he wished to make 
the punishment fit the crime by giving them a difficult and 
apparently impossible task. He concludes by threatening that 
unless Caillin gets the " Táin " for them he will bind them 
under the same u geasa " again. Caillin bids them fast and 
pray while he is away. 



SYNOPSIS OF CHAPTERS 93 

XXXI. 

The bards and their wives wrangle among themselves as 
to who is responsible for the trouble that has come upon them. 
Shanachán quiets them, and reminds them of Caillin's request. 
They fast and pray earnestly for a week. Marbhán and an 
unknown man arrive, and the bards are assembled to hear 
his message. The messenger tells that Caillin and some other 
saints have been gathered together for three days at the tomb 
of Feargus mac Roigh, listening to him relating the M Táin." 
The bards are to continue their praying and fasting more 
earnestly than ever. The bards can scarcely credit the news, 
and they suspect, at first, another trick of Marbhán's. 
Shanachán advises them to carry out Caillin's instructions. 
After three days Cailtin, Marbhán and the strange man return. 
The bards are assembled, and Marbhán calls for the story- 
teller of the College, and directs the strange man to give him 
a book. The storyteller opens the book and reads it aloud 
from beginning to end. It is the long-lost " Táin." Marbhan 
tells them that he considers that they have fulfilled their task 
— the finding of the " Táin " — and leaves with the Parthian 
shot that he has only one word of advice for them, viz., that 
none of them ever again should be seized with a longing for 
the lard of a white boar. The bards are delighted to have 
the " Táin " in their possessien. They bid farewell to Guaire, 
and set out on a visitation tour in Munster, thoroughly cured 
of longings.
